    A little off topic but I got lucky twice from the tractor today as well.

    Found the 5/16" chain I lost moving the hog house 17 years ago!

    Also found an arrowhead someone lost 4 or 5 thousand years ago.

    I have stopped my tractor many of a time to pick up a arrowhead. Sometime a good one and sometimes a piece of one. Found several while setting tobacco . If the tractor stopped in the field the boys knew I stopped because of a arrowhead.
    I don't know why but I could seem to see more from the tractor seat that walking.

    When I used to cultivate a lot of tobacco I could scan the ground with my eye’s better than any damn computer known to man

    I think it may have been trying to find me as well, but then I do have eyes like an eagle.

    Today's find from the tractor. I just happened to look down on my left side and got the tractor stopped a few inches before it made my tire flat! My rear tractor tire found one a few years ago while turning cover crop, I was down for 2 days getting it fixed.

    I'll get back on topic. This illustration shows how beau's axe head was made. The head was made before axe eyes were standardized sometime in the mid 1800's I think.
